Atlanta desegregation
effort struck down
by Supreme Court


From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - The Supreme
Court yesterday struck down legal ef-
forts to consolidate Atlanta's
predominantly black school district
with nine suburban districts.
By a 5-3 vote, the justices upheld two
lower court rulings that there is no
basis for combining the individual
school districts for racial

ruling striking down Thomas Innis'
conviction on grounds that he led police

THE SCHOOL district consolidation
sought by black parents in their 1972
lawsuit would have created a "super-
district" stretching over an area as
large as Delaware.
It would have combined Atlanta's
schools with those in three other city
districts - Decatur, Buford and
Marietta - and with schools in six
county districts - Clayton, Douglas,
Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb.
Massive busing would be required.
The black parents said such a
sweeping desegregation remedy was
needed to give black school children in
Atlanta an equal education.
Atlanta case represents a ruling on the
merits of the Atlanta case, but does not
mean that the Supreme Court never
would allow a desegregation remedy
stretching across school district lines.
Just last month, the justices refused
to scuttle a massive desegregation plan
already in effect in the Wilmington,
Del. area. That plan combined
Wilmington's school district with 10
surrounding suburban school districts
to form a district 10 times the size of
any other in the state.
When the desegregation suit was
filed, there was some disagreement
over its proper forum. As a result, two
parallel and identical cases emerged -
one before a single federal trial judge
and one before a three-judge panel.
BOTH COURTS reached identical

Mother of the year
Zhurka, a rare Manchurian crane on loan from the Moscow Zoo to the
International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisc., is unquestionably a
contender for National Mother of the Year honors. Sunday marked the
second Mother's Day in a row in which one of the bird's eggs was the first one
hatched for the season at the foundation. A wobbly little red-crowned crane
pecked its way out of the shell at 9 p.m. Sunday. Zhurka, whose species
numbers fewer than 1,000 birds in the wild, has been the foundation's
"mother of the year" for producing more eggs than any of the other dozen of
female cranes at the center. She laid 14 eggs in 1979 and set a one-season
foundation record of 16 eggs in 1978. Zhurka had no comment upon receiving
the honors.,Q
Commencing on the right foot
Barbara Seelye, newly-elected president of Keene State College in Keene,
N.H., never got to deliver her first commencement address. After nearly 600
degrees were awarded Sunday, Seelye began to deliver her speech and the
skies opened up to rain. She told the 3,000 in attendance to go home, quipping
"I'll have this printed and sent to you." One college official commented that
she made many friends. E
One scoop or two?
An elderly man recently drove through the wall of a Cahokia, Ill. ice
cream shop, climbed out of his car, and casually ordered and consumed an
ice cream cone and soft drink, authorities said. "He said he wanted an ice
cream cone and Coke and the people were apparently so taken aback that
they served the guy," said police Lt. Guy Westbrook. Several customers
were present at the Dairy Queen when the car hit the counter inside the
building on Thursday. No one was injured, including the driver, a 67-year-old
Cahokia resident. The driver, who offered no explanation for what
happened, finished the cone at the police station, where he was ticketed for
driving without a license. "There's nothing in the statutes for failing to yield
to an ice cream store," Westbrook said. Q
